NHS hospitals must help patients quit smoking, says British Thoracic Society

The need for a new Tobacco Control Plan: an issue of justice

OPEN LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER/SECRETARY OF STATE FOR HEALTH

The Prime Minister’s commitment to ‘fighting against the burning injustice that if you’re born poor, you will die on average nine years earlier than others’[1] is welcome and achievable. As her Government has acknowledged [2], half this difference in life expectancy is due to the higher rates of smoking amongst the least affluent, so major improvements can be achieved by driving down smoking rates amongst the most disadvantaged in society. [3]

The evidence, both at home and abroad, is that doing this requires a comprehensive and sustained government strategy, [4] [5] Many measures, such as the advertising ban, taxation and standardised packaging, are self-sustaining. However to succeed in reducing inequality, the Government also needs to ensure adequate funding for the recurring costs of measures that are known to be effective - mass media campaigns, smoking cessation services and tackling tobacco smuggling. Adequate funding for tobacco control is also core to the “radical upgrade in prevention and public health”, which the NHS Five Year Forward View recognised as essential to ensure the “future health of millions of children, the sustainability of the NHS, and the economic prosperity of Britain”. [6]

Unfortunately, over a year has now passed since the Government’s previous Tobacco Control Plan expired. Despite a statement from the Public Health Minister to Parliament about the importance of a new strategy with new ambitions [7] there is as yet no publication date for its successor.[8] From past experience it is clear that commitment from Health Ministers is not sufficient; if the Prime Minister is really committed to social justice she needs to put her weight behind publication of a new Tobacco Control Plan without further delay.
